Meditation is an Experience, Not a Philosophy

Life is full of stress related experiences, where one goes through the highs and lows, constantly or continuously. I have heard that the art of meditation can help me overcome these circumstances. I want to know about meditation. Can you please tell me something about how to meditate and how can one experience complete relaxation in meditation?

This is what a novice who is suffering from some psychological upheaval asked a yoga professional. And the simple answer that came from the expert is: meditation is the way to increase concentration. You just sit with legs crossed, spine straight, and light a candle in front of you. Now keep gazing at the unwavering flame till your eyes can bear and then just close your eyes. So, now you have done meditation.

Wow! What an explanation. But is this what we call meditation?

No! But unfortunately this is what has been understood by a common man. In reality, no answers can ever suffice to elucidate what meditation is all about and how the regular daily practice of a certain meditation technique can evolve the over all personality of an individual.

Meditation is an experience, not a philosophy. And one goes on looking into the books to research on meditation. When we are looking at the wrong place, how will we find what we are seeking? The need is to be in the benevolence of the master and seek from the master. Master is the one who is well versed with the intricacies involved and it is because of sheer compassion that master shares this treasure.

Today, we have cds and cassettes of meditation techniques which are readily available in the market but the real essence of meditation can be understood and experienced in the presence of an enlightened master. These cds are just a stepping stone towards the unknown path and master is the gateless gate through which the seeker passes and become one with one's own nature.

Visit Anandmurti Gurumaa site for a number of amazingly simple and effective guided meditation techniques. You would also like the great soothing meditation music cds from Mystica Music.

This can be done by meditation, a simple exercises, when practiced on a regular basis, and perfected, will promote in your life, clarity understanding and a calm sense of being.

Most people of today are caught up in the desire for accruing possessions and recognition, whether it be in their jobs or financial status. The western world has forgotten that life is more than worldly gain, and in doing so constantly seek fulfilment, unfortunately it is based on material achievement.new age

I've been watching interviews with people who participated in the Finders Course experiment. They claim to be getting awakened/enlightened/nondual in 3 months or less. Has anyone else seen this? They are on youtube if you search for 'finders course'. It seems to be based on a big academic study from the center for the study of nonsymbolic consciousness. They have videos and articles about some of it here: http://nonsymbolic.org/publications
